Water is now flowing from taps at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital.

However, the water pressure is low.

The hospital’s medical superintendent, Dr Jemesa Tudravu, said they had been receiving tap water from yesterday but because of the low water pressure they installed two additional tanks.

“The Water Authority of Fiji still supplies water to the hospital to fill up our tanks which we then run to the wards.”

Dr Tudravu said despite the water level building up gradually some of the hospital’s departments were still closed because they could not work well without adequate water.

“Water is supplemented from the tanks as the pressure is not that good and we cannot supply water to all wards,” he said.

Services which remained closed at the hospital are the dental, eye, oncology and gynaecology departments.

The Accident and Emergency Unit, Intensive Care Unit, Operating Theatres, the Labour Ward, Children’s Ward and the Maternity Ward are open.

People have been requested to visit Valelevu, Nasinu, Makoi, Wainibokasi, Nausori and Navua health centres.
